3rd Biennial Painting Exhibition

At some point many generations ago society reached a level where ordinary people could spend a lifetime perfecting their ability to mix and apply paint, in extraordinary ways. Manifest established FRESH PAINT as a permanent biennial project in 2013 to inaugurate our expanded gallery. FRESH PAINT 2017 is the third biennial presentation of this international survey of contemporary painting.
FRESH PAINT joins Drawn as a recurring gallery exhibition designed to complement our annual INDA and INPA (drawing and painting) publications. Every two years it launches our exhibition season by presenting a competitive group exhibition focused exclusively on painting.
For this exhibit 116 artists from 22 states, Canada, China, England, France, Indonesia, and Ireland submitted 362 works. Eighteen works by the following 17 artists from 15 states were selected by a blind jury process for presentation in the gallery and the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication.

Hour long Interview on Beyond The Studio Podcast
From Beyond the Studio Podcast:

"In our newest interview we're talking with Jenniffer Omaitz, a multi-faceted Ohio-based artist, about her studio work as a painter and installation artist, and her small marbling and book-binding business JC Marbling.  

Jenniffer is also an actively exhibiting teaching artist, who has shown widely around Colorado and Ohio, done artist residencies, and is one of the newest recipients of the Akron Soul Train Fellowship. 

In this episode, you'll hear more from Jenniffer on how she's steadily grown her art career as a painter, installation artist, and bookmaker, establishing herself within her local arts community, developing patience and persistence, and the freedom to weave together her creative pursuits. "
